If I had seen ahead to the power of the second move, I would have gotten the first move, but I had to be shown where to put my bishop on that first move.
Second move was lovely.2. Bxe6+ Qxe6, 3. Qxg7#
2. Bxe6+ Qf7, 3. Qxg7# and the black queen is helplessly pinned.
So now black has to move 2. ... Kf8, and white overwhelms with Queen and rooks on the 8th rank, all aided by that sitting bishop at e6.
wonderful just wonderful
Very nice demonstration.
really a good one
Useful analyses, slowhare!
sinar77 and slowhare, this is what you were looking for with 1... Nh7:
I don't have time to critique the other lines, maybe someone else will.
Le premier coup des blancs permet déjà d'envisager le contrôle de la case g8... pour mater.
Fun stuff there with two deflection sacrifices at the finish.
Neat puzzle! Nice combination of moves.
In the 1. ... Nh7 line, I can't see a mate in five after 3. Bxe6+, Kxh7. But instead 3. Rxg7+ and Black's done for (3. ...Kf8; 4. Rg8+, Kf7; 5. Qg7#).
not bad today
